Tree hunting in Middlesex - MEADOW RIDGE FARM
  • Meadow Ridge Farm
  • Tree hunting in Middlesex
The Greeks and Romans were among the first to bring evergreen boughs inside during the winter months — evidence that humans have long appreciated the many benefits of cut conifers. Harvesting your own boughs, wreaths or trees is a great family activity, provided everyone dresses warmly. Advance research on varieties guides the selection process: Fraser, balsam or spruce? A sled helps haul the greens — and the kids — out of the woods. Also, check with your local municipality or solid waste district for information about "treecycling" options after the holidays are over. Happy Sawing!
